Burrell Behavioral Health Hosts Ground-Breaking Ceremony for New Youth Services Center

Burrell Behavioral Health in Springfield is breaking ground on a new facility that will cater towards the area’s youth.

On Monday, officials held a ground-breaking ceremony at the new location on North National near Perimeter Behavioral Hospital.

The Youth Services Center will include a behavioral crisis center, hospitalization services, outpatient care and residential facilities.

The company says the center will be for children ages 13-17 experiencing mental health or drug use problems.

A timetable for completion of the project and a potential opening have not been released.
